What exactly is the actual difference between the Internet hosting industry-related terms ?regular RAM? and ?guaranteed RAM??
RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a kind of computer data storage, that enables the info to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. This makes the RAM considerably faster than other kinds of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs in which all the data has to be read to be able to access certain data. When you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory which your web applications can use can't be fixed and may commonly depend on the free memory which is available on the physical machine. When using a standalone server, however, there is always a minimum amount of physical memory that will be available at all times and will never be allocated to other clients even when it is not being used. This is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Web Hosting
The amount of RAM that comes with every dedicated server which we supply is large enough even for really resource-demanding web applications. The memory shall be readily available for your websites and any software which you install on the web server at all times, so if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources which you have, we will never alter the hardware configuration which you have ordered. All of the components are tested before the web server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make certain that you will get a flawlessly operating machine that can guarantee the best possible performance for your sites. The amount of physical memory that you have shall be listed with the full server configuration specifications in your billing Control Panel.
